THE FORE believes in the power of change through collaboration. Every collection is created in partnership with artists, designers, innovators, manufacturers and entrepreneurs. By redefining collaboration we bring thoughtful, quality design, made responsibly to the fore.
Handmade + hand-dyed. The entire dyeing process is artisanal and analogue. We immerse each piece in a hand-stirred vat of natural pigments.
EAIRTH is the brainchild of designer Vivien Ramsay who grew up between NYC and LA, but eventually came home to rediscover her Filipino identity.
Her pure love for naturalism drives her work forward and since the label’s genesis 10 years ago, EAIRTH has become synonymous not only with the use of natural dyes, but also with sustainable practices, high standards for fair labor and regard for their community. THE FORE collaborates with EAIRTH in a focused nine-piece collection featuring luxurious fabrics such as silk, chiffon and lace dyed with natural resources such as talisay leaves, madder and alkanet roots.
The talisay leaf is employed in a variety of uses, from medicinal, antibacterial, antifungal, and more. In our case, the leaf is boiled in water and used as a natural dye.
"As each piece matures, the more beautiful it becomes."
- Vivien Ramsay, The Fore Design Partner
